When a minor or an adult becomes incapacitated
(or incompetent) due to an accident, disability, disease, or old age, it may be necessary to appoint a guardian or conservator to care for them. This enables someone to make important decisions for a minor or incapacitated person, including those involving property, finances, or child care. Conservators and guardians are appointed by the court. Our office will see you through the appointment process, the duties and obligations of a guardian or conservator and the annual status hearing with the court.
